I truly love what I do, and one of the really fun aspects of my job is scouting a new location. Whether it's for a wedding, a family photo session, or a senior shoot, I love getting in a good recon. It gives me joy to find that spot that is just perfect for the occasion. It might be a little out-of-the-way corner for a quiet moment, maybe a really strong and manly looking room for the groomsmen, or the perfect spot for that breathtaking money shot that's going to end up as a giant canvas on your wall.
Location scouting is also very useful to me for purely utilitarian reasons. I find the light, the lines, and the angles to create those one-of-a-kind images that you love to look at and are proud and eager to show off. Finding these spots ahead of time enables me and my team to move seamlessly from place to place, already knowing what's there, so we can get the job done and get you back to the party, or the game, or making dinner for the kids.
As a Bluffton photographer and a lowcountry photographer I am surrounded by stunning natural beauty and unique architecture, and I love incorporating all of it into your session. Take a look at the images below of a location I just scouted for an April wedding. The texture and geometry of the structures are amazing and the surrounding natural beauty, all within steps of the venue, is magnificent. I couldn't have been given a better canvas with which to work.
Until next time, find your joy. Creating beautiful images for you is mine!
